Pro Dive Mexico, one of the most established and recognized dive operations & CDC Centers in Latin America located at several 4-5* Resorts along the Riviera Maya and in Cozumel, proudly announce the implementation of their FIRST SHARKSCHOOL™ RIVIERA MAYA, in collaboration with the world’s most renowned shark behavioral scientist DR. ERICH RITTER and WiroDive.
This unique event on the Yucatan Peninsula will take place from 15-25 Feb 2016 at the top training facilities of Pro Dive Mexico´s coveted partner hotel OCCIDENTAL ALLEGRO PLAYACAR, located at one of the finest white sandy beaches on the Riviera Maya, provide experienced divers with the privilege to encounter BULL SHARKS, learn about their behaviour, practice to interpret situations, react correctly and the most important – to feel comfortable, as well as get all their questions answered about the top of the predatory food chain during the daily SHARKSCHOOL™ workshops with DR. ERICH RITTER, leading shark communications and interactions researcher.
He convincingly states “Once a person is capable of blocking the erroneous media created image, lets the situation develop without prejudice or fear, and solely tries to interpret the shark’s signals and the environmental factors, an encounter will be rewarding, and not just for the person but the shark as well.”
“SharkSchool™ stands for the safe interaction with sharks and the understanding of situations during encounters. That´s how SharkSchool™ connects links between humans, sharks and shark conservation. The collaboration with Dr. Erich Ritter and WiroDive in regards to the Organization of a SharkSchool™ – seminar in Playa del Carmen is an additional important step towards the conservation of “our” sharks.” highlights Markus Fleischmann, CEO & Founder of Pro Dive Mexico.
